Audio routing options coming to Windows 10 Mobile in Redstone update

Also new is an option to automatically turn on the speaker when a user pulls the phone away from their ear, adding a bit of extra convenience by eliminating the need to fiddle around with the phone while taking a call.

It's unclear when updated builds with audio routing will make its way to Insiders, but the inclusion of the feature is a nice perk nonetheless.
